Instructions regarding comment submissions can be found on our LCD Comment and Reconsideration page. Cahaba considers all comments and revises the LCD as needed.

Once finalized, the comments and responses will be compiled into a document which will be accessible within the Final Draft LCD under the “Related Documents” section.
